How to set up my memorex DVD remote to control my magnavox TV?

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but according to the manual in the link you posted, and from Google image searching to look closely at the remote, it doesn't appear to be a universal. The only way you can control your TV with it would be via the DVD player hooked into the TV, and then you will still only be able to control the standard functions of the DVD player (i.e. pause/play, stop, FF/Rew, menus, subtitles, etc.) but not the functions of the TV (i.e. volume, channel, power, etc.). Assuming you get yourself a new, actual universal remote to replace this with, I recommend this site in the future:

Somehow the parental lock was put on so I can only watch pg rated movies. How do I unlock it???


Most RCA TV sets use a four digit code to control the v-chip. The code reset is different depending on the model. Try each number until you find the one that works for you.

1. Hold down the MENU button on the remote and VOLUME DOWN button on the TV it's self at the same time for at least 4 seconds. The set won't say so, but the lock will be unlocked

2. Hold down the 0 (zero) button on the remote and the VOLUME DOWN button on the TV itself at the same time for at least 4 seconds. The set won't say so, but the lock will be unlocked

3. Hold down the MENU button on the front of the TV and the TV button on the remote at the same time for at least 4 seconds. 4- Hold down GO BACK button on the remote and MENU button on the front of the TV at the same time for at least 4 seconds.

4. Hold down EJECT button on the front of the TV set and the MENU button on the remote at the same time for at least 4 seconds. Depending on the model, one of the methods should unlock the V-chip. Now, if desired, you can change the settings on the V-chip by going to the MENU and going to PARENTAL CONTROLS, or on some sets, going to MENU and then going to TV SETUP, then to V-CHIP SET.

Any one amoung the above process will unlock your GE TV. After unlock, you have to do the Vchip-Set.

My grandfather cant remember the code for parental controls. it is stuck on pg. can it be reset with out the code

Forgotten the parental control password? there is a way around this. According to the user manual (page 34) for this particular model:

Enter "788444" even if 4 digits "----" appears, then press [ENT]
to clear the current password.
Enter a new password and set the parental lock level again if required.

Note: DVD video discs may or may not respond to the parental lock
settings. Make sure this function works with your DVD video

You need the original unit's remote to do this. It cannot be done without it.

There is a .pdf of the user manual online.

(It is free to download for personal reference in case you have lost your original copy.)

I hope this helps a tad.

Password reset

The Rating menu allows you to block playback
of DVDs based on their ratings.
Setting the Password & Rating Level
The DVD player allows you to block playback
of inappropriate content with a passwordprotected
Rating system (not all discs are rated).
A. From Stop mode, press SETUP.
B. Select Rating and press ENTER.
C. Select Rating and press ENTER repeatedly to set the rating from 1 (most restrictive)
to 8( least restrictive ).
If a password has already been set, the lock icon will be closed. You will not be
able to select Rating until you SELECT the correct password using the 0-9 keys.
D. Select Password.
E. Use the 0-9 keys to SELECT a 4-digit password and press ENTER. The lock icon will
close to indicate that the rating and password are set.
F. Press SETUP to save and exit.
Not all DVDs are rated.
DVDs that are rated higher than the level you select will not play without SELECTING
the correct password.
If you forget your Rating password, select 8888 to clear the memory. Keep this password
out of reach of children as if will always unlock the Parental Control setting.

DVD player wont work with TV

First, make sure that the units are connected properly * I know it's obvious, but I did it myself one day * Then on your T.V. remote, try hitting INPUT and it should run on your VIDEO channel.
This will work 99.99% of the time. Let me know,
Please rate me.

You can get the original remote on Ebay. I purchased one for my tv and it works great. Plus it's pink!!!! If I were you I would look there to see if you can get the original one, rather then messing around with universal ones!!!
Good Luck!

MAnual/Reset Parental Control Code

According to the manual, "If you forget the password, you can erase your current password by pressing the number 8 button on the remote four times, thn press the enter button to confirm the setting. PASSWORD: 8888"

A picture of an unlocked lock indicates that Parent Lock is NOT active.

Parent Lock Levels:
1: Kid Safe 5 : PG_R
2: G 6 : R
3: PG 7 : NC _17
4: PG_13 8: Adult

It also says that it takes 3-5 seconds to reset the unit to the factory default. I hope this helps! Karen
